Sets were into the head plus range at the point and along the beach when I looked at it for the first time around 0830 this morning. Wind was light from the WNW and out at sea the buoys were seeing 1.6-2 m at 9-10 seconds from the ESE to SSE. So, along with Dee Why, there should be a fair few surf options at beaches near you – just don’t expect it to be uncrowded. The forecast tells us the wind will come around more to the south across the day, but the waves should continue. Beachwatch says the water’s 18C. Tide was low at 0800 and will be back to high at 1420.
Outlook is for the swell to get a a little smaller and weaker but to pretty much stick around – wind willing – in the surfable range through to about midweek.
Have a great Sunday everyone!
